I'm not gonna diss you on the internet.

Primark's game is strong right now. When I headed to Lakeside I picked up a fair amount of their AW14 offerings, including this beautiful check print coat which I'm sure will become a blogger favourite before the season's up as we do tend to have pretty good taste. Inspired by Caroline's simple styling (and a niggling hangover), I paired my new wonder-coat with my faithful Ridley jeans and a sweatshirt that's just made for Sundays spent make-up free in the gym.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of loafers ever since I saw Alexa Chung in those Russell and Bromley loafers, and have been through my fair few pairs bought from ebay. As I'm the kind of girl that'd rather walk two tube stops than suffer underground, I'm rather reluctant to drop a small fortune on a pair of shoes which will last me a year at most, so instead started shopping around: cue Clarks. Since those chunky heeled boots that everyone had in year nine, I've only had one pair of shoes from there, but while wandering around their Oxford Street store whilst waiting to meet friends for pizza (what else is new here?) I couldn't help but pick up a pair. Even if they are particularly painful to break in, I can tell already that these are going to be an all-weather staple.

Right now I'm catching up on everyone else's blogs whilst Sunday Brunch is on in the background and my tea brews (such a classic mix of Essex and Liverpool, as you can see above!). Sometimes it's nice to have a Sunday completely switched off, even if it doesn't happen all that often!

If ever there were a time to stray from my usual Sunday routine of sitting in bed with a cup of tea putting the final touches to a blog post, it would be Halloween. Up until the last couple of years this holiday passed me by in an orange-hued blur, but more recently I've found myself more inclined to celebrate and raid the fancy dress shops for something to top last year's attempts (which, in case you were wondering, were a drunken sunken sailor and my lookalike). I'm not quite ready to reveal what this year's costume will be, but keep your eyes on instagram and twitter this evening as I'm sure there'll be time for a quick ootn! Of course, I'm not going to let the daytime escape a little Halloween nod, so I'll be sure to slip into my trusty J.W.Anderson x Topshop ghost jumper and risk the tuts and glares of many an exasperated City worker on my commute.

Whether you're heading out to terrify the neighbourhood or treating yourself to a night in, I hope you have a lovely Halloween!

Hello, weekend! However much I adore the pace of my job, I can't help but savour a little bit of an escape from the computer screen - and a little bit more sleep! One sunny Saturday I headed over to the ever-faithful Lakeside - a shopping centre in Essex, for those not in the know - to fill my wardrobe with winter pastels and, ahem, another fedora. We went for a little stroll along the lakeside (how could I resist?) to make the most of summer's last rays before coats and tights become a necessity. Or wellingtons, knowing the British weather...
